LGB finally gave me a good deal

11 posts in this topic

been playing/buying NXT Tours for a couple of years, and i buy through LGB or golfballnutz.  LGB has annoyingly high shipping costs and quality is usually a little lower than their representation i feel.

decided to switch to the Srixon XV this year and bought a 50-bucket on ebay for $60 from LGB (free shipping for once).  i got them yesterday and not only are all of them Srixon XV's (problems in the past with getting some randoms in the lot), but zero of them had a corporate logo.  they pretty much all look brand new, and were only 4A quality.  i was pretty surprised.

but...i'm wondering if Srixon just rarely gets corporate logos.  the NXT's usually were about 90% with corp logos.

That's a big part of it... Titleist makes a lot of balls with corporate logos, Srixon not so much so it isn't a surprise to see that you didn't end up with any. I've only ordered from GBN but find them to be very good at representing their product. They also have a "no logo" option for a dollar or two more per dozen if that's what you want.

that makes sense about Srixon.  GBN sold me 100 NXT Tours for $54 shipped, so i am a big fan of them.  the NXT's are now my backup ball if i'm having one of those days where i seem to lose a lot.

Play them. If you lose 3 balls a round, that's about 15 rounds. If you play once a week they are gone in 3 months. Plus why buy them brand new when 18 cost the same as 50 used? Doesn't matter how long they last, it's a better deal.

I have had a great experience with lostgolfballs and when you pay for the no logo option i feel your getting better quality balls because the logo'd balls usually are not that great condition.

I laughed when I saw this...what do we all do with golf balls?  I don't mean to be rude or anything, just found it funny.

If you play a lot of golf I don't see why you wouldn't buy recycled/refinished golf balls.  The sites mentioned in this thread are really good and you can usually save A LOT off retail price when buying used.  And for me at least, it doesn't hurt as much to lose a ProV1 when I know it only cost a buck or two.

I literally just got done buying balls from there....I have bought balls from there a few times and I was just thinking to myself that the shipping prices were crazy!  The cheapest shipping option is for a USPS flat rate box which is almost $13!

I think that they do a decent job of representing the quality of the balls for the most part.  I was a little pissed when I bought several dozen Bridgestone E6 white golf balls and as I was using them, I found a few E5 and E7's mixed in.

As for the corporate logos........almost every ball has one, especially the Titleists!  I was using an NXT Tour S when I made my first/only eagle.  My friends still give me hell about it because the ball that I was using had a Gay/Lesbian Company Logo on the golf ball.  That happened a few months back and they still get on me about that!

What's a "Gay/Lesbian" company? Do they make homosexuals?

I believe it was actually a logo for an event.  It had LGBT with the name of the event and a rainbow as part of the logo.  I do not know what they make.  I just know that I made an eagle with the ball.

That makes considerably more sense. Did the eagle putt go in the back door? LOL.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
